I Can't Believe I'm Posting This...

Tomorrow is my "Biometric Screening." What does this mean? It means they'll take my blood, do some tests, weigh me, measure my body fat percentage , and give me my lovely results in about 10 minutes. I've only had this done once before and it was a year ago...

My results from last year? They're below. I passed with a 92% - which isn't bad - but there are areas I need to improve (such as that lovely body fat %)... So tomorrow is D Day, so to speak.

I'm gonna be honest - I haven't been working my tail off, nor have I been eating right (or even close for that matter)... And ok, maybe I've been fasting some this week, too. Oh shut up. :P

Last year's results:

Total Cholesterol: 166mg/dl should be below 200
HDL Cholesterol: 75mg/dl should be above 60
Cardiac Risk Ratio: 2.2 should be below or at 4.0
LDL Cholesterol: 81mg/dl between 40 and 100
Triglycerides: 50mg/dl between 35 and 150
Glucose: 87mg/dl between 100 and 126 <--ok, so I have low glucose...

Blood Pressure: 107/74 should be 120/80 <--ok, that's low too.

Height: 5 feet, 6 inches
Weight: 142lbs (give me credit, not that I'm fat, but I'm a girl & we don't share that info)

Basal Metabolic Rate: 1454 calories
Waist: 30 inches <--yeah, right. Not anymore. suppose to be below 35.
Body Fat Percentage: 27.7% suppose to be below 25% <--FAILED. I bet I fail again, too.
Body Mass Index: 22.9

Flexibility: 19.0 inches - needs to be 20 or above... <--FAILED.

So, tomorrow is the big day.... Wish me luck and I'll post the results tomorrow (even if they are terrible)!!!!

So, yeah.. that was bold of you, but there is NO WAY you weigh 142 lbs! Not that it's a lot or anything, but from pictures, I would have never thought you weigh more than 120 or 130. Hope that came out as a compliment like I had planned :) LOL. But good luck.

Oh my gosh...I've never had a test like that done but I'm sure you will do better than I ever would! I'm sure you'll do good...
